Midwest Family Lending has chosen to support The Pink Tractor Foundation in the month of May and we encourage you to as well.
Bringing Families Together to Fight Cancer. Each year, the amount raised at the Country Carnival has grown and in June, 2016 – at the fifth annual event – over $60,000 was raised. In one attendee’s words, the Country Carnival is nearly a “national holiday” in the community. Although the tractor is pink, the Brommel family wants to make it clear that the Foundation’s support is not limited to individuals facing breast cancer. Funds have been given to survivors of all types of cancer, including, but not limited to, breast cancer, brain cancer, lung cancer, colon cancer, pancreatic cancer, thyroid cancer, leukemia, melanoma and many others.
The sixth annual Country Carnival is scheduled for Saturday, June 10, 2017 and is located at 3845-G50 Highway, St. Charles, which is at the home of Tom and Marilyn Brommel (and is also referred to as the “Brommel Party Shed”). Auction items are accepted at any time. The Foundation can be reached through its Facebook page or at firstname.lastname@example.org. Donations can be mailed to 3845-G50 Highway, St. Charles, Iowa 50240.
